MARION, Ind. — A soldier from Grant County has been killed in Iraq, a family member said.

Army Pfc. David Austin Kirkpatrick, of Matthews, was killed April 27, said his sister, Carrie Kirkpatrick. Matthews is about 55 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

Military officials told her parents that Kirkpatrick was in a Humvee when it was damaged by an improvised explosive device, she said. She did not know the exact location.

Her 20-year-old brother was a 2006 Eastbrook High School graduate.

Carrie Kirkpatrick said there was no definite date for her brother’s remains to be returned home.

“They told us that seven to 10 days from now he would be back,” she said.

Funeral arrangements for Kirkpatrick were being handled by Jones-Smith Funeral Home in Upland.

In all, 80 people from Indiana have died after being sent to the Middle East since the buildup for the invasion of Iraq began in 2003.
